Ah screw this

Seems like monetization would require more work than I am willing to put into it so I'm no longer going to put much focus on it. However I will continue to put links as I feel suits the contents of my blogs. The blogs are still far from finished too. I need time to put up the pictures from couple weeks ago. Not enough time in a day to do everything I want to do (including slacking off :p).

Monetization blues

I've been thinking about this for a while now but to monetize successfully pretty much requires you to become sort of a web celebrity which is definitely not what I want to be. This really bites. Guess a semi-hikkii, anti-social like me can't really do squat in this kind of society, is there? Danny Choo's promoted blog monetization quite heavily but it really won't work for most people unless they hit really popular status. Anyways I shouldn't whine too much. :p

One thing I've discovered while writing and choosing ads widgets for my blog is that I lose my sense of authenticity when I go overboard on the widgets. It'll definitely be a while before I arrive at the monetization arrangement that I'll be happy with but until then expect some more mess in 2D-ism, lol.

The cold snap

A cold snap is currently hitting Houston. The brunt of it hit on Thursday and will last through the weekend although the daytime shouldn't be nearly as bad as it was on Thur and Fri. Even though it's cold as hell outside, I do still plan to go outside at the very least to test my new camera (see my other blog for details :p). As bad as it is here in Houston, I'm sure it's worse for much of the rest of the US which is why I'm glad I'm in Houston although I'm sure I'd be even happier in Hawaii or Okinawa even. I'm a warm-weather person and I really hate the cold.

New Year, New Wishes

It's the start of the New Year and I expect to do things a bit different this year. The blogs I hope to update at least once a week, there should be enough stuff in my life to do at least that much. As for what I want to do with the blogs, the blogs will serve as kinda self-therapy for me since I'm kinda lost about my direction in life at the moment. I'm at what you can consider more or less a dead end, low income job. It pays better than fast food but you don't learn any real practical skills like you can on the floor of a food establishment. But while I'm out of ideas, I want to do at least something productive and hopefully my blogs will give me insight into what I need to do. This kinda reminds me of the song "Show Me What I'm Looking For" by Carolina Liar. I'm not Christian but I do like some Christian pop like that. Which reminds me, I used to hate all forms of Country but lately it seems I'm starting to like a few, at least the ones that border on rock/pop like some of the Shania Twain stuff. Anyways, nice non-sequitur there. :p

To any that might read this blog, Happy New Year.
